"The Main Drag"

Katonah Avenue is the heart and soul of Woodlawn. As I mentioned in my Woodlawn review, this is definitely an Irish neighborhood without a doubt. Katonah Avenue connects the Bronx and ends on the Yonkers border (though you would not necessarily know which side of the border you are on, as it looks the same on both sides.) This is a lively community with pride and spirit. There are many bars and restaurants serving Irish food where you can watch a soccer game, see a live seisiun (Irish music session), play a game of darts, enjoy a Guiness, and scarf down an Irish breakfast. Mundane places like the laundromat become makeshift community centers where recently arrived and longtime residents alike post ads for apartments, nanny services, and jobs. It is extremely safe and people look out for one another.
  • Rambling House, a great night stop
  • The food and bars
  • The neighborhood pride
  • You may feel uncomfortable here if you are not Irish
  • Far from subways
